WE love you Debbie… you are perfection .. let’s celebrate the life of the Blondie frontman, B-girl, (YESS B-GIRL and we can debate this all day nuugga..) and all around rock goddess today … Here’s to you Ms. Harry Your awesomeness has not been wasted on us. Nobody has filled her shoes yet and please don’t come over here talmbout Gwen Stefani… Gwen is cool but this here IS DEBBIE DAMNIT. She has left her footprint firmly planted in the foundations of everything from art to music. We will not even try to break down how many trends she has mothered. Hell Deborah was A PLAYBOY BUNNY goshdarnit. I appreciate the fact too that Debbie is simiply growing older, she is not running around here with DDD titties, a snatched grill overdoing it. Note to Madonna , although you are not quite 70 yet, BISH THIS IS HOW TO DO IT. She is a powerhouse of a woman then , now and forever. She taught me to “Rip her to Shreds” and also informed me that the “Tide is High” . so covet your seat in the celestial landscape woman. We are forever inspired… HAPPY FUCKING BIRTHDAY DEBORAH HARRY sidenote: Aren’t she and Chris Stein just the ultimate in relationship GOALS OMG..
hey Darth Vader and ANOTHER FAB 5 FREDDY CAMEO ALERT: THE TIDE IS HIGH YO!!!!

After this shit right here I never thought I would see these two in a flick together.. Whooo that was a young serving.. I AM JUST SAYIN.. MC EIHT!!!! He told that nigga that THE G WAS NOT IN HIM.. hahahaha.. well.. Glad these two grown men put that shit behind them.. but it made for some SPECTACULAR HIP HOP.. ON ME. I am sure it almost got funky in the street too .. but thankfully it ended well with this glorious song STANDING when the smoke cleared!!!!!
Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama.. You are an inspiration.. Continue to thrive and support our fabulous President.. You are a mother, a friend,a wife, a daughter and a positive force . How about the fact that the FLOTUS was once Mr. Presidents BOSS.. lol.. I know that’s right.. I may be biased but it is safe to say that Mrs Obama just may be the best damn First Lady this country HAS EVER HAD!!! … I mean you know Eleanor Roosevelt could not hula hoop nor Teach you how to DOUGIE… and not since Lady O have you ever witnessed a First Lady lookin as fly in designer frames…. CONTINUE TO SERVE.. HAPPY 49TH LADY..
Okay so .. I did a wonderful retrospective on the beautiful Ms. Haughton , LAST YEAR on the eve of her passing.. … all of your favorites are there… Check it Out!!! oh and if you are looking for that Drake trash.. you won’t find it here.. Sorry.. Check the other blogs.. they got that shit on REPEAT.. AD NAUSEUM.. Carry ON!!!
Helen Folasade Adu.. Girl.. I can’t believe your ass is 53.. IMPOSSIBLE.. Hers is a love I have cherished since “84’s Diamond Life.
Let’s put our hands together and light a spliff for the beautiful Nigerian/British Swan.. SADE…. wow..
Here at bamboobanga420, we specialize in all things herb related.. (amongst many other things).. Who here can say that they haven’t gingerly placed their SADE entire catalog in the CD player , rolled a fatty, AND VEGGED THE HELL OUT!! Not only is she beautiful but she is cool as a the other side of the pillow… I love how she releases an album; like every DECADE.. and falls right back in line with her original nuance. Sade does not go and retain a rap from Rick Ross, or production of DeadMau5 or whatever the hell is HOT on the pop charts.. She stays eloquently in HER LANE.. and dominates…( I mean there was that remix for “Moon and The Sky” with Jay Z that I did not appreciate).. BUT .. I DIGRESS.. LET’S CELEBRATE.. MS. ADU.. and all of her gifts and simple beauty..
…through clenched teeth .. I say this .. LE SIGH.. I am not feeling this Kardashian and Kanye union.. it’s so fake.. but anyhoo.. here is what she allegedly purchased for his 35th bday .. They have been dating roughly a month .. discuss amongst yourselves.. That’s 750,000 yippers of bullshit right there!!
check below.. for Ye’s G.O.O.D MUSIC situation “MERCY”.. it’s dope..
HAPPY BIRTHDAYNIKKI GIOVANNI.. YOUR WORDS HAVE QUENCHED OUR THIRSTS AND GIVEN US LIFE.. you must be special.. YOU SHARE A BIRTHDAY WITH PRINCE..LOL..
My personal favorite collection of her poetry comes from “Black Feeling, Black Talk”.. Here is one of my favorites..
The True Import Of Present Dialogue, Black vs. Negro (For Peppe, Who Will Ultimately Judge Our Efforts)

The Original “War Pigs”.. same music.. different lyrics = WalPurgis…
ya know things like “eating Dead Rats innards”.. THERE IS THE DIFFERENCE LOL..
here is the video of Body and Soul, from Tony Bennett’s forthcoming album, DUETS 2
“Body and Soul” I mean who else but Amy Winehouse.
WHO THE FUCK ELSE.. I mean this song has been recorded by divas like Billie Holiday, and Sarah Vaughn.. Amy tossed her ring in the basket and pulls it off.. Mr. Bennett of course made this song a classic LONG ago… Good to feature Amy in this version..
we love and miss u so much.. words cannot express.. she was a classic..
She and Nas shared the same birthday and had plans to have a joint birthday celebration.. had she still been here..
Amy loved some Nas.. “Me and Mr Jones” was an ode to her favorite emcee.
Nas enjoyed Amy as well and loved her like a sister. Crazy that they shared the same birthday right?
“She was a genuine person. She was like real,” recalled Nas of the soul songstress, whose song “Me & Mr. Jones” was reportedly written about Nas. “She was struggling with a lot of things in her life, but she was a real artist. She was like a little sister to me. We had the same birthday so she just had this big, big spirit for this little body. I wish she was here today. God bless her soul.” …NAS
Nasty Nas, Nastrodamus, Nasir, he is one of the most important, influential factors in this life we call Hip HOp… He is on my top 5 emcees list ALWAYS!!! Through beefs , conflict, chipped teeth and Jay Z.. Nas is still standing and in better form than ever.. Nasty Nas is currently preparing for the release of his memoir “It Ain’t Hard to Tell .
This Harper Collins published novel will undoubtedly be spicy as he dishes on marriages with both Carmen Bryant and Kelis and discusses the infamous “jay-z situation” as well as his beef with Bill O’ Reilly.
“It Ain’t Hard to Tell” will be co-written by popular journalist/host/producer Toure’.
Behind the scenes of the “Nasty” video.. first single from “Life is Good”.. TAKE IT TO QUEENS NIGGAZ!
